Queerying Occultures

Occult author Phil Hine just published Queerying Occultures Essays from Enfolding Vol. 1. The posted description says:

“What is Queerying Occultures? ‘Queerying’ is a portmanteau word from ‘Queer’ and ‘Query’—classic Phil Hine word play. Occulture is another portmanteau word meaning ‘Hidden Culture’ (from ‘Occult’ and ‘Culture’).

“The occult is Queer. Historically. Intrinsically. Radically. Wonderfully Queer. Yet at times this essential fact can feel unacknowledged in wider Occulture dialogues. Addressing this, Phil Hine’s Queerying Occultures is a collection of queer-themed essays exploring, questioning and reflecting on the diverse trajectories that might arise from applying queer questioning to occultural themes and practices. Drawing on perspectives from Queer Theory, history, Continental Philosophy, and shared experience, Hine explores subjects as diverse as Shamanism and gender-variance; the rise of the Queer Pagan approaches; the uncomfortable history of occult homophobia; Queer perspectives on Tantra, Pan, Sacred Spaces, and Crowley in Boy Bar Berlin. This far-reaching, necessary book is both a celebratory resistance text and indispensable investigation of the Queer in Occulture.”

  1. I went to the lecture with Phil Hine and Patricia Maccormack last Monday, it was fantastic actually, you can see some of the lecture images here (sorry for the accidental self promotion if you’ve perceived it this way, I’m genuinely just sharing with you as I thought you’d like them and maybe find them useful) on my instagram at https://www.instagram.com/p/Co6Jal9I7tD/ it was an absolute joy and I’m very thankful I met both Professor Patricia Maccormack and Phil Hine, I wish I could have spent more time with them but last trains on a school night are always a bit of a pain!
